I have always wanted to provide my children with a history experience that is filled with hands-on experiences. I want to be the mom/teacher who recreates King Tuts tomb, leads an archeological dig in the back yard, and directs the writing and performance of a play recreating the pilgrim's first Thanksgiving. Unfortunately I find that these activities often get pushed to the backburner as we plough through our work and life. If this sounds like you, this class will guarantee that at least 30 times this school year your history curriculum will be injected with creativity.
This class will study Story of the World I. Projects and activities in class will be centered on readings from this text.
In this class your student will: ~Experience history through crafts, plays, projects, etc. ~Learn beginner note taking skills ~Learn how to summarize information ~Practice presentation skills
PARENT CHOICE: This tutorial's goal is to serve your family. One way Edventure Classroom serves families well is by providing choices for the amount of work completed at home.
AT HOME: Students will read assigned chapters that will be discussed in class. Each week students will write the answers to four questions from the reading using complete sentences. Parents will be provided with additional options to further challenge their student. If a topic is of particular interest to your student they will be given the opportunity to share what they learn with the class.
Additionally, readings from AChild's History of the World and/or Mystery of History I can be provided to make this program more rigorous.
I will provide a calendar with reading schedules for all three books.
Required Texts: Story of the World I (At www.welltrainedmind.com you can purchase an MP3 version or CD version of this text.)
Optional Texts: A Child's History of the World Mystery of History I
